Maurice Hawkins made it into the World Series of Poker history books on April 10th when winning the 2017 Horseshoe Council Bluffs Main Event for $97,561 and, more importantly, his 10th career WSOP Circuit gold ring!

The Florida poker pro also became the first player in history of the Circuit to win a fourth Circuit Main Event! Before his latest victory, he was tied with Blair Hinkle and Chris Ferguson with three wins each.

"Women and men lie, numbers don't," said Hawkins when asked if he is the greatest WSOP Circuit player of all-time.

"I didn't realize the enormity of the situation, of the moment, until after I did not get the ring. Everybody was like, ‘Oh bro, that was number ten.' Kevmath is Tweeting on the Internet, ‘Maurice Hawkins goes for number 10,' everyone is talking about number 10," said Hawkins.

2017 Horseshoe Council Bluffs Main Event had two starting days and attracted 149 entries. Here are the final table results:

1st: Maurice Hawkins - $97,561
2nd: William Perpich - $60,292
3rd: Charles Moore - $43,748
4th: Ross Clare - $32,276
5th: Sam De Silva - $24,207
6th: Jack Do - $18,447
7th: Stanley Webb - $14,276
8th: Matt Hamilton - $11,219
9th: David Delaney - $8,951

Good for him I guess, I can only say I have never heard of any of these players before nor about this tournament to be honest but now I know both and it feels like I won't die stupid no more without this knowledge.

I know a few poker pros, or players that call themselves so, but never heard of this guy Maurice Hawkins, who is now the record breaker of world series of poker. 10 bracelets looks impressive, but not so big tournaments he is playing, 149 players here, maybe similar amount in other tourneys, so it's like winning 10 multi table sng's

Maurice Hawkins is not a familiar player to me ... probably he plays poker well if he has achieved record results but I do not know why ... of course if you play a lot of small tournaments you can win a record number of these tournaments .... but everything The winner is the winner

A massive well done to Maurice Hawkins! Maurice is a smart guy. He got accepted to a medical school but he chose to become a poker professional instead. And look at him now! I strongly believe that he can be a source of inspiration to all the aspiring poker players in the world.

so i guess now maurice can retire from poker, he has 10 rings, one ring a piece for each of his hopefully 10 fingers (unless he previously worked in a sawmill an had an accident or two). oh he can also try to win another rings for his friend between the legs, so called cock-ring.

Many congratulations to Maurice Hawkins on winning this event and the first prize of $97,561. To win one of these rings is a massive achievement but to win 10 is quite phenomenal

you know i kinda thought that my man maurice deserves another shoutout, since what he achieved is beyond imagination, now he can safely sleep knowing that 10 rings are proudly owned by his left and right hand fingers. maurice dude you are one hell of a poker player, btw can you lend me $10 i will pay you back tomorrow?

Maurice will have ten rings from now on and a couple years and WSOP tourneys later he will change his name into Sauron. It has to happen.
